Sheltered Stargazing @Stonehaugh

Stonehaugh Commuinty Hall
Stonehaugh
NE48 3DZ

Come and experience an unforgettable night under the stars in Northumberland International Dark Sky Park – the largest in Europe!

 

We will meet up in the community Hall in Stonehaugh before going outside to see the new "Stargazing Pavilion". The Stargazing Pavilion was designed and built by students at Newcastle University’s School of Architecture, who worked closely with Kielder Water & Forest Park Development Trust and local residents.

We will be your guide taking you on an incredible journey through the constellations and along the Milky Way, while also showing you how to find all sorts of heavenly objects for yourself. There will be powerful telescopes for you to gaze through, all operated by "Starmaker" amateur astronomers, who will attempt to answer your questions on life, the universe and everything!

 

We'll tell you more about our Dark Sky Park and show startling images and videos of the objects we hope to see when we go outside, weather permitting. But even if the weather does not co-operate we'll still have colourful talks, videos and hands on help with telescopes, together with friendly advice on how to get started in this wonderful hobby.

 

This event is suitable for adults and children aged over 8.

 

Wrap up warmly, bring binoculars if you have them and also a torch

 

Did you know; from towns and cities we see just a handful of stars, but in Northumberland International Dark Sky Park we could count 2,000 at any one time!

 

Please book early - places are limited.
